New Avenue B bar won't be fratty or barfy, owner claims



Well! The other day we were understandbly horrified curious when we heard, via our friends at Grub Street, that a Speakeasy/Mardi Gras style bar is coming to 25 Avenue B. Hmmmm.....

Regardless! Grub Street's Daniel Maurer followed up with the new owner and learned that maybe we all shouldn't have the fear...:

We called the joint’s operator Kyle Radzyminski (also a partner in Thunder Jackson’s) and asked him whether East Village residents should invest in mops.

"We aren’t looking at ruining the neighborhood," Radzyminski told us. That's one thing people get frightened of. A couple of our guys have families and multiple kids. It's more of a place where you can watch sports, not a frat house." Radzyminski assured us that he’s looking to open "a place for almost anyone and everyone."


Goggla left this comment the other day: "Avenue B, the new Bourbon Street...hang on to your bead curtains." Heh. But can you imagine this place and Croxley's operating at the same time....?

No more frat houses!
(he rap sounds like le souks. They were "family" guys also. Except between 11pm-5am when they were coke dealing, underage serving, drunk beating scumbags)

Go to chelsea. I hear the clubs are the bomb

Ah Animal House!!! Anyhoo, Idle Hands & Croxley's together are going to rip a hole in the Avenue B time/space continuum...
